People (South Africa) - - Body News | Health News -

YES, it is pos­si­ble – and you have enough time to get sexy arms for that long-awaited sum­mer va­ca­tion. Here are some easy-to-fol­low tips:

1. Change Your Po­si­tion: When do­ing bi­cep curls make sure to per­form them with three hand po­si­tions: palms up, palms down, and thumbs to the side.

2. Use That Sta­bil­ity Ball: It’s not just for great abs or toned legs, the ball can help you tone those arms, too. Ex­perts ex­plain that the sta­bil­ity ball will en­gage your core and am­plify the re­sults you get from chest ex­er­cises. Shape.com sug­gest you try the sin­gle-arm chest fly on the ball: Start with your shoul­ders on the ball, hips lifted, and both hands over your chest hold­ing light weights. Slowly lower one arm ex­tended to the side, pause, and re­turn to cen­tre. Per­form 15 rep­e­ti­tions on each arm.

3. Row, Row, Row Your Boat: Okay, you don’t have to have a boat, but you can start row­ing at the gym. Row­ing can give you spec­tac­u­lar arms so make sure to in­clude it in your work­out.

4. Plank It, Baby: What a great way to tone the whole body, right?

Ex­perts ex­plain that while stan­dard planks are a great way to strengthen your arms and core, to re­ally take your arm ton­ing up a notch, place one hand on a pa­per plate. Here’s how: Keep­ing your arms straight (and both feet planted shoul­der­width apart), cir­cle the plate 10 times clock­wise and 10 times counter-clock­wise. Switch arms and re­peat.
